DescriptionTranquility goes up the toe of the south buttess of Moosedog Tower and. At the alcove about 50 feet up, curve right around the overhang to the 1st "summit." Continue up slabby face climbing to the top of the formation.
This climb gets one star only if you can't lead 5.8. Otherwise, skip this one and climb Direct South Face. Moosedog has a nice summit and a fun, free-hanging rappel descent, but this route is a fairly unpleasant way to get there. There are some nice moves off the ground, and the second pitch is fun, but the moves to get around the overhang on the first pitch, while not particularly difficult, pretty much suck.
Although a 60m rope will reach to the top, most climbers divide this into two pitches to alleviate rope drag. If you're comfortable on run out 5.6 slab, there's no need to build the intermediate belay -- just don't place any pieces on the second pitch.
